Let me thank everyone for participating. I commend you for being a worthy adversary. You really gave me a lot to think about. I hope I did the same.
It is my stand that religion influenced by greed, ego and fear is the problem not belief. I believe good beliefs will eventually defeat bad religions and prevail as accepted philosophy. I read recently that the number of people like me is steadily growing, so there is reason for my hopeful prediction.
Please Take Care,
